  1. Great blog! Except for the Carnival and the social issues I never knew much about Brazil, but thanks to your blog (and links) and the interview of course you opened the Brazilian door so to speak. And thanks for writing in English, it really helps to connect us.

  2. Thank you for follow me here. I would like to ask if you were possible to share with us how did you first came here and if has any subject that would be interesting for you and our people on your country to read about blackness in Brazil
    Thank you one more time

  3. Since you asked for topics that would be interesting, I did some brainstorming. So here is the result.

    I saw your blog on my link list. Concerning the topics. Personally I am very interested in stories about people, current affairs and recent developments in the Afro-Brazilian community. For instance, incidents like what happened to the black Spanish boy and the effect of the recent protests in the shopping mall Higienopolis in Sao Paulo. Are the protest part of broad movement, or are they just activist students who are inspired by the Occupy Movement.

    Also interesting are stories about the ‘Troféu Raça Negra’ and other big events. But most of all I am interesting in stories of Brazil from an Afro-Brazilian perspective. Like, is there rising black middle class, or are the majority of Afro-Brazilians still locked inside of the Vavelas?

    In Europe most of the stories about Brazil are about Carnival, football and the ongoing drugs war between the police and the gangs in the poor neighboorhoods. On TV it looks as if there are no black police officers.

    But recently I saw an item about rise of rental prises of office spaces due to economic boom in Brazil. But then you only see white Brazilians. From that perspective it would interested to know if there are black/brown people having a role in the booming economy and on what level.

    And I am interested what you've learned of the UN program in Vienna and if it's applicable in your country.

    I hope this is what you were looking for.

  4. Thank you very much for your suggestions. Where are you from? It would help me to do a comparison between situation in Brazil and your country.
    My next post will be about black people with light skin in Brazil, it is really deep and I'm in this group. One of the readers asked me to talk about it.
    And I'll keep your suggestions for a post after that.

  5. I am from the Netherlands, but I am from Surinamese and Dutch Caribbean descent. Interesting topic you're going to write about. I am looking forward to it.

  6. I've been reading your blog for a while and I think you're doing a great job! I was born in Argentina (I'm white) where black culture has been erased, even though about 20% of the population has black ancestry. I'm now living in the US with my husband and my three children, two of them adopted from Ethiopia and I'm also about to finish my third adoption from the same country. I'm very involved in learning about Ethiopian and African culture, race relations and racism. Congratulation on your blog! I will add your link to my site;

    1. Hola Alicia, Thank you very much for your words, unfortunatelly I don't speak spanish yet, but my goal is in a near future to write my blog also in a third language. Last year I started to research about afro latino people and was a surprise to me to know more about Afro Argentinos, I didn't have any idea that there were black people in Argentina. I'm glad that you are enjoying my posts and I hope my words can help you deal with your kids that probably will have experiences that you couldn't live, not only with racism, but also to create a black identity. I really enjoyed the content of your site. I hope you can come here again and let your comments and suggestions, if you can, read the new post about to be a lighter person in Brazil. God bless you
